Have You Ever?

have you ever
felt an emotion
of struggle¿
a feeling of nowhere
to run for cover
nothing that no merry

have you ever
felt an emotion
of pain and joy¿

Way So Far

i tremble with tenderness
and touch with eagerness
under the fading star
of my own way so far
to let me stay by you
and say(d) a prayer
with me in prayer
destined to be there
with you in prayer

Not Of Empty Men (with Plenty Yen)

my hands are not of empty men
the empty men with plenty yen
but are of plenty pen
of its own word
to stick a broken
jaw of men
not so bad
as my eyes dare not meet any men
that hold to hurt a son of men

Butterflies Look So Colorful

butterflies look so colorful
in their own color
and the blue sky of emptiness
looks beautiful when rain
clouds gather around
and soon rain come fall
over the land i walketh
to let the birds sing in joy
as the butterflies fly over
in their colorful color
to co-exist with man

Hope

the sun is going down
behind the wood
to call upon the moon
at dawn
and noon
as wise as it could
but the time is gone
for me to go home
and rest upon a stone
and wait for the sun
tomorrow
and unearth memories
of ageing intellect
with passion and hope
as the sun
goes down
and usher me a kingdom come

Of Your Own

...personal compass of your own

you are a divine
point of creative thought
which expresses through your thinking
as you create your life experience
(and personal reality)
you are the yard stick
of your own compass
to guide you

so move on as directed
(wheresoever) by you
for you

Weep Not Child

weep not child

wipe those tears from your eyes
weep not child
weep not for you are not alone
weep not child

wipe those very tears
surely, over the years
but somewhat he above us cares
your struggle he bears
to wipe them off and clears
the shackles
and tackles
of all scuffles
and troubles

weep not child
for you are not alone.

Am Inspired, Are You?

inspiration is not desired
to be inspired
it is discovered
and authored
it is rewarded
and guarded
by the power to live
the hour to give
an inspired
soul a sense to express,

so, i am inspired
now,
are you?
if so,
spread your wings
and fly
within you,
reach out your hands
and touch the sky

I Miss(ed) You

o' long lonely days
of miles away
my forehead bathes in sweat
in the bare gardens of loneliness
forgotten in boredom or happiness?
as my unusual face
looks at a distant place
so far in distance
to see (un) clearly who is coming
to my scene
with an unusual laughter
to be a happy man again
for i miss(ed) you so much
my dear love....

Pebbles

pillow of comfort and ease
like pebbles over the waving stream
soothing, authentic and pebbling
my eyes see each pebble
as it glitters beyond the still water(s)
and smiles back at me in awe
each pebble utters a thousand words
with one but different meanings
for one word
a diverse attitude of meaning,
i rise to my body and pebbled
by the waves on the banks of the river
footing towards, to pick a pebble
as i close(d) my eyes to rest
on my pillow...
